EXPO 2000 - Hannover (18.07. and 29.07. - 02.08.2000)

Twice the ensemble "GuitArt" was invited - together with a foreign ensemble, (this is condition for an appearance) - to play at the EXPO 2000. As foreign ensemble participated the excellent choir of the Tschaikowsky Music College from Simferopol (Ukraine / Krim). This contact goes back to the already repeated visit of "GuitArt" on Crimea.

At the concerts, "GuitArt" premiered the ensemble-composition "Three Misunderstandings on F. S.", written by the known German guitarist Wulfin Lieske as a particular repertoire-highlight.

At this occasion, the SWR - radio (Kurpfalzradio) did interviews and record the rehearsals.
